A Study on Co-modality and Eco Driving Mobility

Data enrichment applied to detailed mobility data

In this study, our Data Enrichment Group (DEG) identified key opportunities for Toyota Motor Europe (TME) in the context of the European Commission's 2011 White Paper "Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area - Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system". DEG performed an in-depth case study of the modal shift and technology potentials within an Eco Driving project, and indicated long-term business opportunities for TME.

Our DEG group has a wide data mining and enrichment expertise, which was used for the exploration of precise mobility data provided by TME. This entailed the analysis of trip measurements and the development of scenarios taking parameters such as emission, energy, time and cost into account.

TML used and developed the necessary computational tools to analyse the data in such a way that an understanding of the underlying structures within the data emerged. This allowed for the assessment of the micro-level of mobility (i.e., driver behaviour), as well as the meso-level (i.e., trip planning) and macro-levels (i.e., long-term mobility planning).
